Some option news from the Batlimore Orioles. The Sun reports that the Orioles will exercise the options of reliever Darren O’Day ($4.25 million) and Wei-Yin Chen ($4.75 million) but will decline the option of Nick Hundley ($5 million).
Hundley is no surprise, as the O’s expect to get Matt Weiters back next season and will have Caleb Joseph in the fold. O’Day is a tad expensive for a reliever, but he is one of the best setup guys in baseball so it makes total sense that they want him back. Chen is an utter no-brainer, as his option is less than half of what other, comparable starters routinely get.
